Handbook for Solar Industrial Applications at 100-250°C


Potential market size and environmental benefits make the use of solar heat in industrial applications a promising and vast area for future application of solar thermal systems. Many industrial thermal processes can combine their traditional heat sources with solar energy. Solar concentrating collectors can generate process heat like steam, thermal oil or hot water, both directly or indirectly depending on what is best for each industrial process.


The handbook is presenting a general overview of suitable technologies for solar industrial process integration. Starting with different collector types and technologies as well as common working fluids and moreover several system applications as storage types. Furthermore, general system design settings assisted with a few rule of thumbs for the design process are given including some calculation examples.


Besides a scope of application and further potentials of process integration also three detailed case studies are presented. The three case studies address industrial and commercial applications including solar cooling as well as hot water and steam generation for various countries (Italy, Chile and Jordan) to show the application potential of the new FRESH NRG collector.
